CNN – Powell Choice Of Obama A Slap To GOP, Analysts Say. One of the reasons for Powell’s decision was based on the negative campaign being run by the GOP. While his decision and explanation carry much more weight, there are many people – inside and outside of America who may feel the same way.
Does this mean Senator McCain is less capable then Senator Obama? Not actually. But what does this say about his character, and that of the Republican Party? A “win at all costs” mentality could result in 305,461,482 losers (.t the time of publishing).
No one exists in a bubble. As a business owner, you cannot expect to go around the community tearing down other business, customers and employees, and expect to achieve your full potential If you are a small business owner, and you act without character and integrity, your business will more-than-likely fail. I have seen it over and over and over again. I have seen the same business owner fail over and over and over again.
You’ve got to take care of the people, business and communities that take care of you. That doesn’t mean that you wait for them to do something – it is not a self-serving activity. You make the first steps without seeking your own objectives. You compete, but you do so with honor, character and integrity.
